As globalization has increased awareness of the extent of language contact and linguistic diversity, questions concerning bilingualism and multilingualism have taken on an increasing importance from both practical and scholarly points of view. Written by leading experts and practitioners in the field, The Blackwell Guide to Research Methods in Bilingualism and Multilingualism:

  • Highlights the interdisciplinary nature of research on bilingualism and multilingualism and offers a practical guide to the procedures and tools for collecting and analyzing data
  • Specifically addresses methodological issues, discussing research topics, core concepts and approaches, and the methods and techniques available
  • Links theory to method, and to data, and answers a real need for a know-how volume on bilingualism and multilingualism that deals with its methodology in a systematic and coherent way

Melissa G. Moyer is Associate Professor of English Linguistics at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.

Review:

“An intellectually rich, comprehensive, lucid introduction to conceptualizing, developing, conducting and dispersing the results of research on bilingual individuals and populations. The editors have, brilliantly, enlisted researchers known for their work in the areas they have been asked to cover, so that both details and structure are fully thought-through and au courant.” Loraine K. Obler, City University of New York 

“Students and more experienced researchers alike will find this volume invaluable in providing exactly what they need. Edited by two experienced and respected practitioners, the Guide focuses on details of method and procedure, as well as outlining major issues in the field and providing useful (and useable) models for research projects.” Lesley Milroy, University of Michigan and University of Oxford 

“This is a highly innovative book - of great value to everybody who wants to do research on bilingualism, in whatever methodological framework. Comprehensive, always to the point, and full of good ideas. If you have a research question about bilingualism, this book will show you how to answer it.” Peter Auer, University of Frieburg
